The Ashley is our very first piece of jewelry we've ever designed in collaboration with a woman we admire–Ashley Streicher, LA-based celebrity hair stylist and dear friend of Emily (and cupcakes and cashmere!). We're so excited to introduce this limited-edition earring that pairs well with pretty much everything.
The Ashley is a spin on our bestselling Margot earring–with mixed metals (silver and yellow gold) and a pavé hoop, it can be worn forwards or backwards, which makes it one of the most unique and versatile pieces we've ever made. You can dress it up or down, layer, and pair it with other pieces for an edgy, yet classic ear party.
- Sterling silver and 14k gold-plated silver
- Decorated with cubic zirconias
- Hoop diameter: 13mm
- Approximate drop length: 1"
From Emily: What doesn’t draw you to Ashley Streicher? Ash and I have been friends for years, and she’s sunshine in human form. Her endless energy and down-for-anything attitude draws you to her instantly, and she’s been an epic travel companion, whether we’re in New Orleans, Jackson Hole, or Dunton Springs.
You can’t necessarily put your finger on Ashley’s style. She’s just as comfortable embracing her inner girlie girl (rocking bows and flirty dresses) as she is treading down a mountain on a snowboard. Everything about her is thoughtful yet effortless, and her California carefree vibe is enviable – you want what she’s done to her hair, what she has on her lips, what shoes she has on, or whatever earring she’s wearing.
She has a zest for life that often includes eating the best food, drinking delicious cocktails, and always involves finding the fun in the every day. I love that being effortless is so intrinsically her. We’re honored to have Ashley as our first jewelry collaboration, and thrilled with what she designed for the Shop. xE
Ashley says: "I have always loved the way silver and gold look together, but I find that it's actually hard to wear them at the same time unless you have one piece that can meld it all together, and I think that's what this earring can be for a lot of people. It's such a good way to incorporate all of your jewelry together, which will allow you to wear everything all at once. It's both delicate and wearable, and I just love the 'jangle' of it all!"
Emily says: "This is a gateway earring for anyone who has ever been interested in mixing metals; it's a little edgier than what we typically go for, but you have to start somewhere and this is honestly the perfect piece. I feel so comfortable mixing gold and silver now. I love that it's so versatile–it makes a statement, but it's also simple and classic enough that you can just keep it in all the time without feeling like you're really 'going for it' every day."
Ashley styles The Ashley earring with the Angela hoops (sometimes adding the Camden heart charm), the Margot (in silver or gold), and layered necklaces, either silver or gold. She also likes to wear The Ashley backwards (with the pavé facing the back).
Emily likes to wear two Ashleys paired up in the same ear.
